A rustic Ruddy Turnstone Inn wedding on Cape Cod

"Crazy, he calls me, sure I'm crazy... crazy in love, you see"

On a 75 degree Saturday, light clouds rolled in and out of the harbor as the seabreeze filled our noses with the sweet smell of salt. Cape Cod is a magical place, as everyone who has vacationed there can attest to. Laura & Alex grew up on the Cape, and first met going to local music shows. After losing touch and moving to Boston after a few years, fate brought them back together, and a romance blossomed. Alex asked Laura to be his wife while they were vacationing on Captiva Island in Florida, and finally, the day had come.

Everything about the day was true to the personalities of Laura & Alex - Laura’s dazzling shoes with Dutch dolls for heels, macarons flown in from France, a natural pine wood ceremony arch, rustic barrels filled with flowers, mini succulent escort cards, family style reception seating, watercolor and lace bridesmaids dresses, vintage decor, and more. Wrapped around Laura’s colorful bouquet was her grandmother’s jewelry and a swatch of fabric from her grandfather’s shirt. Laura met Alex at the ceremony, both shedding tears. The love was overwhelming.

The reception was wonderfully laid back, with guests gathering to hang out in Adirondack chairs on the lawn, dancing with the family, eating cake and salt water taffy from Laura’s mother’s 1856 Country Store in Centerville, and socializing with all their friends and family. The couple headed off to an afterparty before jetting off to their Bermudan honeymoon!

Laura & Alex - I hope your love continues to grow deeper every day, that you lift each other up when you are down, and that you let those famous giggles ring through your house until you’re old and grey.

Thank you to all the amazing vendors!

Kristin & Eric // An intimate Cape Cod wedding

"True love is the joy of life."

On this beautiful Sunday, I finally met Kristin on her big day. Cool as a cucumber and full of smiles, she presented me with a ball jar full of Skittles when I walked into her bridal suite. I’ve never been so surprised in my life! Thoughtful doesn’t even begin to describe Miss K. She sure found a perfect partner, though - Eric. With their love of running, the beach and going on adventures together, Kristin & Eric are the perfect fit.

The Cape Cod ocean breeze was refreshing as the sun beamed down on these two, as they pronounced their love in front of their closest family and a few friends. They tied the knot (literally, joining their hands) and ran off to the beach, hiking up her dress to wiggle her toes in the sand. Their reception was full of laughs and tears - and some of the most impressive dance moves I’ve ever seen! I can’t say enough about their guests, too - so hospitable, kind, and loving - they made me feel like family, and it was the first time meeting them! What a special group of people that Kristin & Eric are so lucky to call family. 

K&E, I can’t wait to follow all your adventures as husband and wife. May your love grow over the years, and your laughter even more.

Thank you to all the wonderful vendors!
